  • I substituted beef broth for the water and boullion cubes, you can get salt free and fat free and it cuts the sodium of this recipe or you can not add the salt if I was using the bouillion, they have enough salt as it is. But it was a tasty dish for and we had it with a large green salad - 9/24/11

    After cooking and draining the beef, rinse it with water to get off even more fat. I do this every time I cook beef this way (sloppy joes, chili, etc.). - 9/25/11

    Optional preparation: brown beef in soup pot (adds flavour), remove, drain. Cook soup in same pot without meat or cheese. Blend if planning to freeze. Add meat. Can freeze at this point. Heat, sprinkle shredded cheese on top. Serve. - 7/18/11
